Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A beautifully presented spacious detached thatched house standing in mature established gardens of 0.85 acre on the edge of the sought after New Forest village of Hyde.

Cass Cottage is a substantial pebble dash rendered thatched cottage standing in established gardens extending to 0.85 acre. The cottage was extended in the late 1980s with the addition of the Drawing Room and Master Bedroom suite and the cottage was comprehensively refurbished approximately 7 years ago to include re-thatching of the roof, replacement windows, a new central heating system, re-fitted kitchen and bathroom suites. The well presented living accommodation is spacious and adaptable, and is balanced by four double bedrooms on the upper level. Externally, the attractive gardens are well stocked and the offer a good degree of privacy.

Cass Cottage sits within the picturesque New Forest village of Hyde, one of several peaceful villages in the immediate vicinity that populate the upper North West corner of the National Park. The community revolves around the reputable primary school overlooking Hyde Common, which is within walking distance, and Hyde Garden Centre, where there is also a small shop and Tea Rooms. The neighbouring villages of Frogham and North Gorley are both home to popular public houses, whilst the Avonside town of Fordingbridge (approximately 2 miles) offers a range of educational, recreational and health facilities to cater for most everyday needs. Communications and access to the wider area are good. The A338 provides a convenient route to Salisbury, Ringwood and Bournemouth and the B3078 crosses the forest to link with Junction 1 of the M27 for Southampton and beyond. Airports are located at Bournemouth and Southampton and direct rail services run from all three principle centres to London Waterloo. The outdoor enthusiast is equally well catered for and with the New Forest quite literally on the doorstep some wonderful walking, riding, running, and cycling opportunities are to hand.

Cass Cottage is accessed via a gravel track from the village road leading to the rear of the property via gates and cattle grid onto a driveway for two cars. There is a single garage with light and power connected and a timber shed to side. The gardens have been well planted and stocked with mature trees and an assortment of colourful flower and shrub beds that offset sweeping lawns, which gently follow the gradient of the hillside to the west. There is also an ornamental pond and a number of specimen trees, and the garden is dotted with well sited seating areas and a patio that take full advantage of the privacy afforded by the well screened boundaries. A wrought iron gate provides pedestrian access from the front roadside via a crazy path to the entrance porch.

Mains water and electricity. Oil fired central heating. Private drainage by treatment plant.

Leave Fordingbridge travelling south on the A338. After approximately 1 mile turn left at the crossroads (sign posted Hyde) and continue. Pass over the cattle grid and as the road begins to rise into the village, Cass Cottage will be located as the 3rd house on the left.
